In a previous life I worked as a video journalist for a current affairs programme (the equivalent of CBS's 60 minutes) in South Africa. After completing an MA in Human Rights and International Law I relocated to Australia with my wife from NZ and have since been shooting stills photography - primarily landscape photography. I am a member of the Australian Institute of Professional Photographers (AIPP) and enter their APPA awards annually - I have been fortunate to win a number of awards there. This year (as well as in 2014) I have had the good fortune of having images selected as being included in the Top 101 International Landscape Photographs of the year as determined by peers (http://internationallandscapephotographer.com/Top101-15.php). In 2015 there were 2,600 images entered and two of my images were selected.
